How to enter flash mode

Fastboot: Hold down POWER and VOL DOWN

Recovery: Hold down POWER and VOL UP until the silver "Kindle Fire" shows up. Then let go of POWER.

Preparing for install

Unlock your bootloader and install TWRP. SAFESTRAP WILL NOT WORK!!

This will automatically do it: https://forum.xda-developers.com/kindle-fire-hdx/general/multi-platform-1-click-bootloader-t3241014

However, there is a manual tutorial here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/kindle-fire-hdx/general/thor-unlocking-bootloader-firmware-t3463982

Installation

(TWRP) Copy amazon-thor.img and boot.img to the sdcard, along with a file called flash.sh that contains

dd if=amazon-thor.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system bs=1M; dd if=boot.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot bs=1M

Open up TWRP on your device, and do the following, IN ORDER:

  • Wipe all your partitions (including System, Data, and Internal Storage!)
  • Reboot > Recovery
  • Mount > ensure System is unchecked
  • Go to the terminal, and do cd /sdcard, and then sh flash.sh
